By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on November 20, 2018

These programs are available only to HCUD customers. If you are interested in participating, review the following program descriptions and requirements.

Low-Flow Toilet Rebate Program

HCUD is offering up to a $200 ($100 per toilet) water bill credit for qualified customers who have their high-gallon per flush (gpf) toilet (toilets manufactured before 1994 using 3.5 to 7 gpf) changed out with a new water-saving toilet using 1.6 gpf or less.

Program requirements:

  1. Your home must be older than 1994*
  2. You must currently have a 3.5 gpf or higher toilet
  3. You must be a HCUD customer
  4. You must use a participating plumber for purchase and installation of your new toilet(s)

*If your home was built in 2000 or before and you have not received a low-flow toilet rebate in the past, you may participate in this program by replacing a 1.6 gpf toilet with a 1.28 gpf toilet.

For a list of participating plumbers, visit https://www.hernandocounty.us/departments/departments-n-z/utilities/conservation/water-conservation-customer-incentives or call (352) 754-4705. Do it yourself or customer purchased toilets do not qualify for this program. This rebate is available until September 27, 2019.

Rain Sensor Rebate Program

HCUD is offering a $50 water bill credit for qualified customers who replace the rain sensor on their irrigation system at their home. Outside water use accounts for at least half of total household use. A properly working rain sensor automatically shuts off your sprinkler system when there has been adequate rainfall, saving money and conserving water.

Program requirements:

  1. Your home and irrigation system must be older than 2005
  2. You must use HCUD-provided water to irrigate your lawn
  3. You must use a participating irrigation contractor for purchase and installation of rain sensor

For a list of participating irrigation contractors, visit https://www.hernandocounty.us/departments/departments-n-z/utilities/conservation/water-conservation-customer-incentives or call (352) 754-4705. DIY installations do not qualify for this program. This rebate is available until September 27, 2019.

High-Efficiency Clothes Washer Rebate Program

HCUD is offering a $100 water bill credit for qualified customers who replace their non-high efficiency clothes washer with a new Energy Star-labeled high-efficiency clothes washing machine. Customers must request an authorization code prior to purchasing a high-efficiency clothes washing machine to be eligible for the rebate program. To receive an authorization code and see a full list of qualifications, visit https://www.hernandocounty.us/departments/departments-n-z/utilities/he-washer-rebate. This rebate is available until September 27, 2019.
